«"Music happens somewhere else". I came up with that phrase when I needed one for lezrod's myspace site and later found that somebody else conceived it for an article on William Basinski and Richard Chartier's self-titled on the german magazine DE:Bug.

This album is the culmination of absolute and pure experimentation and many instanced of the recording are of questionable...

Swirling, heavily effected guitar sounds weave a cinematic soundscape in Spycker's debut album for Webbed Hand. "Surrounded by menacing trees. Each branch a threatening limb. A strong and ruthless wind blows with irksome ease. A forest filled with a shroud of desolate despair. Darkness interspersed with fragments of hazy fog, withered leaves and flowers bent all over from lack of shade and water. Several nights elapse in unspeakable horror. Would it eventually collapse back onto itself?... Topics: ambient, dark ambient, post-rock, guitar, guitar ambient, Spycker

The signature sound of tgbts is the use of heavily processed guitar to craft profound droning soundscapes. About the album: A selection of tracks recorded between 2009 and 2011 that were all more or less planned to be completed - but finally stayed in their first, raw state, with various flaws. This is TGBTS' 2nd "posthumous" album. As usual, using only guitars (often prepared, detuned, e-bowed...) and effects. About the artist: "One person project, creating experimental...
